As part of our hunting trip this weekend (see the Hunts & Finds folder for more pictures) we travelled through Bishop Georgia and noticed this old abandoned rail line. The line actually ran from just outside Bishop up into Athens and Hull. Not sure what railroad this was part of, but the rows are still there on the side of Hwy 441 going into Bishop for several miles. Trees and bushes are now making their homes in the rows, could there ever have been a telephone/telegraph line along this old railroad??

If anyone has any additional information on this, please email me!!
